Gas gouging too much
To the Editor ,
I recently went down-Island to a meeting, and driving into Ladysmith, I noticed gas was a few cents less than Nanaimo’s. But driving through Duncan, I was shocked and surprised when I saw its gas was even cheaper.
In Nanaimo, we are not just being gouged, it’s daylight robbery.
When the price of gas goes up, it’s mostly by seven cents, but when it comes down, it’s only by two cents.
Stop blaming the problems in the Middle East. We ship more oil to the U.S. at a lower price than we import.
To save on the price of gas, the city (with our taxes) is buying electric vehicles.
It’s time citizens of Nanaimo took action.
We should boycott gas companies, on top of the tax we are forced to pay.
We don’t need an organization to fight an injustice. Join the cause, tell your friends, tell the young drivers. Together we will all benefit.
So let’s get out there and boycott.
